Chorus Urbanus members have returned back from the choir's highly successful 12th Choral Tour to Torino with singing engagements at St John Bosco's Church of Maria Ausiliatrice in Valdocco, the Chapel of the Holy Shroud at the Duomo di Torino and the SS. Trinità Church in Nichelino.

Don Joe was highly popular among the youth of Nichelino and was instrumental in marrying his pastoral ministry with sports, making Nichelino a very vibrant community.
